    UPGRADE ur script!!!
  • why a support ticket? it's a comon question
    I don't control the licensing aspect of KBar and don't know what the options are here. Only the marketplace support staff can answer this question.
  • Upgrade your computer! Are you kidding?

    A handful of customers are attempting to use KBar 2.0.8 on older slow machines and this was the cause of their issue. This would not be the case for the two of you. I would appreciate it if you could open a support ticket so I can diagnose the specific issue on your machines.
  • On the compatibility page it says it is compatible with After Effect 2022, but in fact it is not! This is wrong, and it can be considered misleading advertising!! I demand that this be corrected immediately! I bought the tool to use in my work and I can't, for lack of support!
    On the very top of the product page I have a large yellow banner stating that some customers are having issues (most can use it just fine). If you're having a specific issue, please open a support ticket and I'm happy to see what I can do.
  • Hi everyone, if you're running into issues with KBar on recent versions of After Effects 2022 make sure you're on the latest version (2.0.8)You can get it through the ZXP installer provided by aescripts.com here https://aescripts.com/learn/zxp-installer/

    Updating to the newest version is working for most customers.
  • Perfect in AE2022
  • Is it work on M1 MACOS?
  • Thank you for this plugin Its awesome. Any chance you can share with us the template buttons from screenshots? Also do you know when exactly will appear kbar v3? 
  • After years of using this script I had to retire it today. It's been a fun ride but it's far to buggy and is now impeading my workflow to the point where I have to reset it (and AE) too many times throughout the day for it to make sense. Will potentially revisit this script when 3.0 comes out but I am reluctant to pay for a new license until I actually see that it works. 
  • Is it work on M1 MACOS?
    If the trial version works on M1 the rest of it will work fine.
  • Thank you for this plugin Its awesome. Any chance you can share with us the template buttons from screenshots? Also do you know when exactly will appear kbar v3? 
    I'm not sure what you mean by "template buttons" Can you clarify?

    Also, no specific launch date for KBar3 yet. I'm still working on it though.

    Hi Tony, it pains me to see a post like this.  For what its worth the issue is bad enough that it has Adobe's attention. I've been working with the After Effect team to diagnose this but they haven't had any luck.  Apparently recent versions of AE are having a quiet internal crash triggered when KBar and some other script/plugin/tool run open at the same time. We don't know which ones and sometimes it's simply when too much is open at once.

    KBar 3.0 is a full rewrite in hopes that will alleviate (hopefully eliminate) all this. If you want to help me get it out faster I'd appreciate having some beta testers once it's ready. Just open a support ticket with your contact info if you're open to that.
  • Rafi,

    I just want to chime in and say KBar2 has been an invaluable addition to my toolset, and the additional features offered by newer versions of AE still aren't attractive enough in comparison to upgrade from 2020. So you've got me in your corner, for what it's worth. I completely understand developers can get blindsided by architectural changes when a host program is updated, and I know there's sometimes not a lot you or Adobe can do to head off unexpected issues like this.

    I appreciate you taking the time to write KBar3 from the ground up. Please count me in as a beta tester. I'd love to continue using the extension and be confident that it'll work before I migrate to a newer version of AE.
  • Can script function and description support Chinese characters?

    Hi Adhish, pleasure to meet you. Can you please open a support ticket with your email address so I can add you as a beta tester?

    Yes it can!
  • Hi everyone, I've posted a new version of KBar (v2.0.9).  It's a small update and made some experimental changes to help alleviate the "black screen" problem that a number of people have reported. This might not fix it for everyone but I'm hoping it will help. Please give this a try and file a support ticket if it does not help.

    Separately, I'm getting ready to start a beta for KBar 3.0. If you're interested in being part of this please open a support ticket with the title "KBar 3.0 Beta"

    Thanks!
  • KBar v2.0.9,each time AE is run, a window will pop up and prompt for entering the license, which seriously affects the use !
  • KBar v2.0.9,After entering the license, the next time AE2022 is run, it will appear again and pop up the window of entering the license,
    which seriously affects the use ! 
    This problem has not occurred before.

    Hello. I talked to some other customers that used 2.0.9 and they are not experiencing this. Please open a support ticket so I can help you.
  • KBar, one of the best plugins so far, a must-have absolutely essential!
    5 stars!
  • Hey, I'm trying the KBar demo, but I'm having a problem with how it communicates with the internet & my firewall. It seems that the file that tries to connect to the internet has a different filename every time I load up KBar, which frustratingly means I can't add it to my exceptions list since the next time it loads up, it'll be seen as a different file anyway. Which means the only way around it is to either turn off my firewall (not doing that), allow port 5029 for EVERYTHING (again, that's not safe), or have to keep manually allowing it every single time I load up After Effects. Surely there's a better way to do this by having the file that wants to connect to the internet have the same name and location every time?

    You don't need to open up the firewall for everything. The port is only accessed to and from localhost. You can narrow the firewall rules to just that.

    Thanks Rafi, I think I've sorted it now :). One final thing; is it possible to somehow add line spacing in the 'description'/'tooltip popups? I'd like to be able to neatly put on the main buttons description what modifier version do. Eg:

    Button description:
    Click = Ease
    Ctrl+Click = EaseIn
    Alt+Click = EaseOut

    Glad it worked out!

    As for the tooltips this isn't supported out of the box but will look into it for a future update.
  • Hi,

    I've noticed a few menu commands that aren't available with Kbar. I don't remember most of them off the top of my head, but one I do remember is the fact that "Reveal in Explorer" (for Windows computers) won't come up. The script has Reveal in Finder, but not explorer. Is it possible to add this?

    Thanks!
